HB1195 and HB1161 are good bills to repeal the transgender policy of the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA). The SDHSAA has adopted a policy to allow “transgender” students to play on the team opposite of their assigned sex at birth. HB1195 and HB1161 would repeal that policy.

HB1195 passed in the House with a vote of 51-16, and HB1161 passed in the House with a vote of 46-23.

These bills now face stiff opposition in the Senate Education Committee Tuesday morning, March 3.

Take Action TODAY: 1.) Contact each member of the Senate Education Committee and ask them to support both HB1195 and HB1161. 2.) Contact your state senator and urge him/her to vote YES on HB1195 and HB1161. Please provide a brief reason for your position. Or, phone the Senate lobby to leave a message for your senator at (605) 773-3821. If you don’t know who your senator is, click here to find out.
